Sad iron is an antique household iron, made of a solid piece of cast iron. Sad irons were originally invented in ancient China, because of course, and they were in popular use in Europe and America from the 17th century through the late 1800s. In more rural parts of the US where electricity arrived late, they persisted into the early 1900s.
